Hoylake Shipwreck Photography Walks

Walk out to sea at low tide from Hoylake and what do you find about 1 mile offshore? The remains of a large shipwreck!
Add in a beautiful Wirral Sunset and boy do you have a subject to die for!

A unique Wirral subject to photograph.

One of my absolute favourite sunset & sunrise routes! This is a walk 1 mile straight out across the sands at Hoylake to the mysterious unknown Hoylake shipwreck. No one knows the name of the ship that was wrecked here but the large remains are an incredible sight. The wreck first appeared in 2010 and has been slowly emerging from the sands as the tide reveals more and more of it.

The Route

This route is offered as a sunset walk in Summer and a sunrise walk in Winter.

In summer we set off from the slipway at Kings Gap and walk out across the sand exploring the vast flat sandbank at Hoylake. On a clear day views stretch from the Great Orme in north wales all the way up to Blackpool.

About halfway across the beach, in line with Hoylake Lifeboat (in winter we walk from the Lifeboat Station slipway itself), we turn and head straight for the receding water descending the sandbanks until we reach the sea and the remains of the mysterious Hoylake shipwreck.

We’ll then spend a good hour or so looking for interesting compositions as the sun sets in summer and the sun rises in winter before heading back along the same route to our start location.

*Free Neon Light Photowalks are offered for no upfront fee, all I ask is that participants consider giving whatever they feel the walk was worth to them at the end of the walk in the form of a tip with no expectation. Suggested donation £10-£15 but at participants discretion.
